Diary of 1st Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Wednesday, September 7, 1864

Was happily surprised to find it pleasant this morning; has turned out the finest day of the fall. Lieutenant H. W. Kingsley came up with the day's rations; ate supper with us. The moonlight, band music and charm of the night has killed the monotony.
